Why not?
The boy proved he can handle his rifle well.
There is no shortage of black bears. Black bears are not cuddly fun loving little Disney creatures that bebop around the forest primeval singing songs. They are scavengers that can be very dangerous to humans and live stock when they over populate an area.

not so much for the black bear, but for the the attention hes getting for killing something at such a young, impressionable age.

So he's been impressed with the fact that animals are made of meat, meat is food, food is good.
Kill more meat to eat.
Farm kids have been killing animals for the table by that age throughout history. Unfortunately in todays PC world, our touchy feely society keeps trying to disassociate us from reality. That does no good whatsoever and arguably does considerable harm to our children.
Kids should know that their sausage used to walk and grunt. It's no different than having them raise a garden.

agreed, thats how I grew up. we killed pigs, cattle, sheep, and chickens when I was young plus we hunted...I don't see a problem with teaching kids to hunt or shoot at a very young age as long as you do it right.

That's cool the father has taught him the weapons. I've always said education is the best defense.

I thought a good offense is the best defense? Are we mixing metaphors again?

Maybe there's still hope for kids growing up these days. What do you want to bet that kid grows up and stays out of trouble.

X3! The attention he's getting is from a Liberal slanted news organization, some of them believe that a rat is a dog is a bear is a boy. Cudos, for the good shot and composure.

Yeah, all us hillbillies are like cavemen. We all have Geico.

That is a trophy bear in these parts. I wouldn't mind having a chance to take one like it. I have only ever seen ONE black bear in my part of the state. That kid has a memory of a lifetime.

Not real common around here either, so you can imagine our surprise when we saw a black bear cub wander across the parking lot at our old condo a few years ago! Never saw him again, and never heard any more about it, so he's probably still lurking about out the there in the woods, looking for an unsuspecting snack to wander by!

PA just started a new mentoring program to bring more involvement into hunting. No age limit and no weapon size restriction. My son is 10 and I have been bringing him scouting with me since he was 6 years old. That was the same age I taught him shooting and gun safety.

A couple of years ago, a friend of his showed off grandma's revolver that she had stashed in her nightstand. Thank God, my son had remembered what I taught him about guns. When his friend took out the revolver, my son warned his friend to put the gun down and he promptly left the room and got his mother. Apparently, mom did not know about the gun and grandma forgot she had it in there. Yes, it was loaded.

The first question I ask any of my son's friends parents: Are your firearms secured and locked? The second question: Can you please show me?

I take great pride in passing along traditional values to my children, hunting is one of them. I intend to teach my daughter when she gets old enough. Last week my son was driving my Jeep in the woods and I was the passenger.

Too many kids are shoved into daycare only to be sat in front of some dumb TV after they are picked up to waste the other half of their day. Parents need to get more involved. Outdor activities - such as hunting - creates an inseparable bond with your kids. They learn so much about nature and the experiences last a lifetime.

That right there is why Im teaching my kids about them. If you show them what it is, how its used, and how its not used, when that happens they will know how to react. Im never worried about them getting at my guns but you can't always control what other people do with theirs.

i saw it on espn.com yesterday and had no problem with it. good for him actually is what i thought. the younger you start kids around weapons the safer and more responsible they'll be around them. he already knows at the age of 5 that guns can kill and are not toys. seen it first hand.

to the thing about only kill it if you're going to eat it. contrary to popular belief. you can still eat all of the meat when you mount an animal, the hide is all that gets mounted. not the meat. also, we kill about 3 armadillos a week down here and no we dont eat them. if anyone has a problem with it, i'll either send them to you to eat, or trap em and send em to you to keep. ya'll people north of about atlanta will understand one day. as they're slowly movin north.

back to the offense and defense metaphors.... the one i heard was defense wins championships. but is the best defense is a good offense, does that mean offense wins championships
